YAY! My 70s themed photo shoot was published in Untitled Collective Magazine! I worked with an amazing team on this photo shoot. They were bloody awesome! THANK YOU!

Stylist: Sophie Chittock
The photo shoot was inspired by 70s imagery, focusing around warm tones and lots of interesting textures. I chose The X Bells as the backdrop to our photo shoot as it had a really chilled out, homely feel to it. A lot of the details and textures at the location matched the look we were going for as well. Perfection! Kirsty is the 70s bohemian queen! She moved effortlessly in front of the camera, pulling you in shot after shot. Beth captured the gorgeous 70 look perfectly with warm tones which really suited Kirsty. It was magic seeing Sophie’s styling incorporated with all the other elements of the shoot. Everything worked so well together.
On the day of the shoot, I wanted to incorporate the use of interesting textures, space and geometric patterned elements into the compositions. I would place something close to the lens to give a feeling of depth or grounding the image. I used space and patterns to ensure there is some interest in the foreground or background, but that the attention was still on Kirsty. I edited the photos using golden warm tones throughout, really enhancing the 70s vibe.
The title New Day Woman comes from a Suzi Quatro song. Suzi Quatro was (and still is!) my idol as I was growing up. Suzi’s personality is a wonderful combination of strength and femininity, something unique and refreshing. I believe these photos represent just that.
